Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War hit theaters last week, and it’s safe to say that it has become a behemoth of a movie. Joe and Anthony Russo have crafted something incredibly special with this latest MCU movie, and Chris Evans continues to prove that he was born to play that Star-Spangled Avenger.

Considering just how awesome Civil War is as a movie, it’s hard to imagine that Captain America once had a terrible legacy at the movies. Over the last five years the character has become one of the most undeniably reliable and badass superheroes to ever grace the silver screen – and he seems far from done. With that in mind, we previously talked about some of Cap's most truly heroic moments, and now we have compiled a list of the eleven moments from the Marvel Cinematic Universe that definitively exemplify Steve Rogers’ status as a badass. Now let’s get started with one of the earliest...

Chasing Down Heinz Kruger
Captain America barely had a second to breathe before he was forced to put up or shut up following the success of Project Rebirth. Towards the end of Captain America: The First Avenger’s first act, Dr. Erskine is killed by assassin Heinz Kruger, and Steve immediately hops into action for the very first time. Using his newfound peak human abilities, Steve chases Kruger through the streets of New York in what could only be described as one of the MCU’s most inspirational scenes. Here, we get hints of everything to come: Steve’s insane speed; his strength; and even his aptitude for using a shield to block incoming gunfire – all while constantly apologizing for the destruction he causes. Although Kruger kills himself at the end of the chase, Rogers gets his man and announces Captain America’s arrival in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
